CAPITALISM For Those Who Hate It….
Capitalism, like fire, is a useful tool. When it is used by careless, single-minded, greed motivated, unconscionable individuals, it is a very dangerous thing. It runs amok.
Capitalism, an economic system, ALWAYS seeks to control the society, i.e. the social system. It does this for its own advantage. This is built into the very heart of capitalism.
It is the duty of the social system to 'own' the society's economic system. Our society has failed to control, regulate, and use our economic system properly. If we failed to control fire in the same careless way, we'd none of us have homes!
Until we stop buying into the concept, propagated by greed-capitalists, that capitalism and democracy are irrevocably interconnected, we are going to have great difficulty establishing proper control of this useful, but dangerous, tool.
We can easily see that when the economic system comes to dominate the social system it forces the "greed philosophy" onto the social system to the detriment of its members - us.
It is the job of the social system to set the aims of the society for the good of ALL the members of the society. It ought not to allow any of the sub-systems, such as the economic one, to do harm to any of the members of the society.
To this end it is necessary for the economic system to be put back in its cage and kept under strict control. Anything else is a disaster for the society and its citizens.
